This specific kidney grille detailing is one of the four choices that are available for the new BMW iX3. The other optional visual treatment include: chrome frame + black pattern, chrome + black pattern + blue tint and all high-gloss Shadow Line black grille.

The side window ornaments are finished in chrome, while the side sills structure is adorned in high-gloss black and features a BMW i blue accent.

When the new BMW iX3 is launched, it will pack a 210 kW / 286 PS (282 hp) electric powertrain with rear-wheel traction. It will also feature the 5th generation of the eDrive architecture, comprising a more compact high-voltage battery with a capacity of 75 kWh.

According to official BMW calculations, the estimated electric range in the WLTP cycle will exceed 440 kilometers.

We expect the new BMW iX3 to be unveiled later in June.
